If you’ve ever had or been worried about an Amazon package being swiped from your porch worry no more. The folks at Amazon are always working on ways to make it easier for you to part with your money. The giant yellow box at the 7-11 Grace and Harrison allows you pick up your package safe and sound.  The locker program has been around in New York, Seattle, and London since 2011 but Wallace is the first  and only one in RVA.

It’s pretty ingenious the way it works. Place your order with your normal shipping options. When the object arrives it’s placed in the appropriately sized locker and you receive a code. Input the code on the touch screen  and a door springs open and you get your package.
